by Zoe Greenhalgh in CPD, Events, News

Tuesday 1st November 2022

7-9pm (online), £15

Led by Georgina Roberts this CPD session will explore whether music can effectively support the parent-infant relationship.

As part of her MSc in Child and Adolescent Mental Health and Well-being, Georgina gathered a cross-section of service provider reflections on the effectiveness of music to support parent-infant relationships.

During the session Georgina will unpack her findings and promote discussion around three themes:

  • what does ‘music’ mean in the context of parent-infant relationships
  • reflections on terminology associated with parent-infant relationships
  • considering the musical and non-musical approaches to support the parent-infant relationship.

This session is suitable for music practitioners, early years practitioners and parent-infant mental health practitioners
